Vocal Ranges of Male Roles in Sweeney Todd#1
Posted: 8/22/09 at 12:21am
Hey there. Does anyone have access to the Sweeney Todd score? I'm wondering what the vocal range requirements are for each of the major male roles:

Sweeney
The Judge
Anthony
Tobias
The Beadle
Pirrelli

Thank you in advance!

Thanks so much! Admittedly, I'd done a google search, but hadn't thought of delving into the wikipedia page. Anyone know where the D5 comes in for Beadle? The end of Kiss Me/Ladies..Sensitivities perhaps?

Where does Tobias' high A come in? In "Pirelli's Miracle Elixer" ??? I forget. I know "Not While I'm Around" goes up to an A-flat.....


I'm auditioning for Sweeney tomorrow so I'm curious.
I don't WANT to live in what they call "a certain way." In the first place I'd be no good at it and besides that I don't want to be identified with any one class of people. I want to live every whichway, among all kinds---and know them---and understand them---and love them---THAT's what I want! - Philip Barry (Holiday)
